Debbie Wasserman-Schultz says Scott Walker is giving women “the back of his hand”

September 3, 2014

 While speaking about women’s issues today Debbie Wasserman-Schultz wasted no time in laying into Scott Walker for opposing abortion and a minimum wage hike by accusing him of giving women “the back of his hand” and “grabbing us by the hair.”

  Here is what she said:

“Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”

  But of course she could not leave the Tea Party out of the mix:

“What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch.”

  Needless to say this did not sit well with her political opponents:

 Republican Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch said she was “shocked” that Wasserman Schultz used domestic violence language to discuss political disagreements. Regardless of the circumstance, authorities take felony domestic violence incidences very seriously.

“I think the remarks were absolutely hideous and the motive behind them was despicable,” Kleefisch said.

Kleefisch called on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke to “denounce these outrageous statements” made by the DNC leader.

Stephanie Wilson, Burke’s press secretary, suggested in a statement that Wasserman Schultz’s comments went too far.

“That’s not the type of language that Mary Burke would use, or has used, to point out the clear differences in this contest,” Wilson said.

Wilson added, “There is plenty that she and Governor Walker disagree on — but those disagreements can and should be pointed out respectfully.”

  Now forgive me if I am wrong but did not Barack Obama once call for civility in political discussions? Why, yes he did in fact, while speaking after Gabby Giffords was shot.

  Here is what he said back then:

“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized, at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do,” he said, “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

  debbie-wasserman-schultzDebbie Wasserman-Schultz’s comments do not actually help to heal any wounds, now do they? In fact they are purposely designed to divide the people on the lines of gender. Perhaps she did not get the memo.

  But of course Barack Obama was not talking to the Democrats when he made that statement, he was talking only to those who oppose the agenda of the Democrats because the Democrats have made a living in recent years by dividing Americans between class, race, gender, and sexual orientation. It is what they do and it is how they win. Civil discourse only works one way apparently…

  The Democrats are growing increasingly concerned that the Republicans are going to win the Senate and control both houses of the Congress. (Personally I do not think the Republicans will gain control of the Senate.) And so all bets are off; they feel they are losing the debate on some issues so they must revive the old strategy of turning Americans against each other. Of course they are forgetting that the President is planning on bypassing the Congress every chance he gets, so what are they worried about?  In the end the establishment Democrats want to ensure they keep their own personal power and position.

  Ordo ab chao, or if you prefer, divide and conquer. The end result is the same…

    One classy lady. Forget the lady part. It is going to get rougher.

      And the classy part! This is only the opening salvo, it is going to get much worse as the election draws closer and the Democrats get more desperate.

    She’s a mental midget and so are the people who’ve voted for her. Sadly, she has lots of company in the halls of Congress.

    There are so many Senators/Representatives in office that I have to question the sanity of those that voted for them. She happens to be one of them! The problem is, it doe not matter if what they say is true or not, they just have to get it out there and then worry about taking it back later. Once they say it, we know there are those that will believe it even if it is retracted, so there in lies the problem. We have people that will not think for themselves, so they rely being told what to think by people such as this woman. As a nation, I think we are “dumbing down” rather quickly, don’t you?

      Ha, it is early, I left out “ignorant” in the first sentence, sorry! Meant to say ignorant Senators/Representatives, but then again, most of you can read thru the lines on what the rest of us are trying to get across.

      Exactly Lou, they do not have to worry about being called out for their hypocrisy because they know the MSM will not do it, and they know the voters will not figure it out on their own because too many people live in the moment and do not pay attention to politics until it is time to vote. And then they only know what they hear in the soundbites…
